Life’s full of little uncertainties when it comes to getting from A to B. The best-laid plans can be derailed by the smallest of hiccups, like a flat battery, traffic jam or wrong turn. Or how about a booked taxi that never turns up? In a fraction of a second, your busy schedule collapses like a house of cards and your blood pressure catapults you into stroke territory! Time to loosen your grip on the reins a little?
Getting someone else to do the driving’s all well and good in theory but your options are thin on the ground. Chances are, you’ve never considered using professional chauffeur services. Here are our top 5 reasons to take the plunge and book a professional driver today!
You’ll be pleasantly surprised by just how affordable professional chauffeur services can be. Book a taxi and you’ve got flag fall and a ticking meter. They’re the only incentives a taxi driver needs to slow to a crawl and take the longest route possible. You’re never going to know for sure just how hard your ride will hit you in the hip pocket until you reach your destination.
Tap-to-ride with Uber and you run the risk of surge pricing. You’ll be liable to grossly inflated fares when customer demand is high, such as peak hour and public holidays. There’s no such thing as a true ‘flat rate’.
Professional chauffeur services offer an attractive, predictable pricing regime for a premium service. Call ahead for a quote to know exactly where you stand before you even take an ever-so-comfortable seat. Talk to Hughes Limousines about corporate accounts if you travel frequently for work and get even better deals on pricing.
When you slide into the passenger seat of a vehicle, you’re literally placing your life in someone else’s hands. You want to know that your driver values your safety just as much as they value their own and has an impeccable driving record. But that’s not all.
You want them to go above and beyond to provide you with a superior experience. You want all the bells and whistles that make for the sense of luxury you deserve: a helping hand with your baggage, professionalism and punctuality, or old school courtesy and a friendly, welcoming smile when you need it most. A great driver has local knowledge that’s second to none, along with, most importantly, a ‘can do’ attitude. You don’t get that when you roll the dice and take your chances at the taxi rank!
Another great benefit of using professional chauffeur services is the consistency of vehicle you are guaranteed each time you use Hughes Limousines as opposed to any old vehicle showing up while using other ride sharing options. Our range of luxury chauffeured vehicles includes executive (Mercedes E Class, Holden Caprice) and premium sedans (BMW 7-Series, Audi A8).
Professional chauffeur services are streets ahead of the competition when it comes to ensuring only the very best drivers are behind the wheel of the very best cars. They must meet the highest of standards and demonstrate exceptional customer service skills. Renowned for their discretion and attention to detail, our drivers are the public face, and the heart, of Hughes Limousines. Without them we would not be one of the oldest and most highly-regarded professional chauffeur services in Australia. You’re guaranteed to experience an unsurpassed level of client care when you choose us.
If you’re busy, the time you spend in transit on the road is wasted time. Waiting for taxis, looking for a carpark or sitting in traffic kills productivity! At best, you can make a phone call or two, but the reality is that your full attention has to be on the road ahead. Depending on how your journey pans out, you’ll probably arrive at your destination frazzled and off your game. Not so with professional chauffeur services.
When you’re using a driving service, you’ll suddenly find yourself with time you never knew you had. Get some work done or just relax or read a paper while someone else worries about the traffic. Go over the agenda for your meeting, practice that speech, or take a look at some maps as you plan a holiday. Isn’t that a better use of your time?
A professional chauffeur service affords you the space, comfort, and peace and quiet to give your full attention to the things that are a priority for you. You’ll have no traffic tangles to consider, and no obligation to make small talk with the driver.
How you choose to get to your destination speaks volumes about you as a person. Nothing creates a better first impression than a professional chauffeur service. Chauffeur driven vehicles are perfect if you want to woo a coveted client, organise a glitch-free airport transfer or treat that special someone to a wonderful night out. You’re guaranteed that attention’s paid to even the smallest of details. You simply can’t make the same instant good impression by booking a taxi or driving yourself.
In addition with professional chauffeur services, you have the added benefit of extra legroom with the long wheel based cars from Hughes Limousines and also extra luggage space in our chauffeured vehicles.
You probably don’t hesitate for a second when it comes to showering your loved ones with the finer things in life. But why hesitate when it comes to treating yourself?
You’ve put yourself last one too many times. It’s time to stop and smell the roses. Take a break and enjoy that coastal drive you’ve been meaning to do for years. This time, look out the window and marvel at the scenery rolling past. Play that round of golf at the prestigious club. Go to that boutique winery your friends have talked about. And don’t hold back from sitting in the sun and enjoying a few glasses of wine along the way! With our professional chauffeur services, a luxurious, door-to-door drive in a purring limousine is guaranteed. That leaves you free to turn your attention to really being in the moment. Enjoy what it’s like to be on the receiving end of some pampering for once.
